Self-evidently, the world is a dangerous, even deadly place. And that is equally true for the hidden world, the Lower Realms of the Goblins - a region which is also home to many and various creatures which occupy the quieter spots of the underground caverns.
The realms of the Goblins is suffused with all of the pleasures and vices, the complexities and realities, of civilisations everywhere. Goblins are born, grow to adulthood, marry, divorce and cohabit with one another, bear children and, eventually, they reach their final resting place, a grave within the cold hard rock of the cavern walls themselves. Or at least, most do. Some few live a life less ordinary, while yet others manage an extraordinary death.
There are those who make their way through life seeking truths from those still living and, when called upon, confirming the veracity of those already beyond the grave. One name stands out from the masses: Findo Gask. Those who have a need are advised to track him down and negotiate for his services: for the princely sum of twenty-five dollars a day - plus a few inconsequential expenses - he will provide you with the truths you seek.
